So as I neglected to finish this in September I did ponder about thinking of some other things I had learnt to finish the book up to 30th. In the end I decided to draw it to it's end here so my final page explains that maybe this was the last learnt lesson for the month!
Now I can get onto guilt free Christmas crafting!
With that in mind here are the last pages..16th was a story written by a child in the class, who is 6. I repeated it with her spellings and it is really lovely!
17th is fairly self explanatory. I don't get lie ins very often. A lie in to me is 7am as I am usually up at 5.45. On 18th I booked online for air tickets to a Uni open day in Edinburgh. Another new thing I have never done before.
I went to Mayfield Bonfire with the children in the parade. Now it is just too much to lug my great big camera all the way round so at the end I took a quick pic of the fair on my mobile and I love the fact this pic show just the blobs of light.

Us adults came up with the design to represent Guiding and that allowed every girl to do a square each. Lots of the girls have never sewn, or said they couldn't, but these are what they came up with! One of the Mums did the words for us and another Mum who makes church banners mounted them onto the red velvet but otherwise the girls did them all by themselves. We just have to label the back and then they are ready to be sent off. I hope they like them! We also decided to make a banner for the Unit to keep as it is our Centenary year and that is nearly finished so I will show that when it is completed later on!
Last night I was a bit naughty! I should have been soap wrapping but after looking at Efemera's blog I HAD to make this cute little pear! Jess said it looked like a tartan scrotum (!!!!!) but I shall ignore her rude comments. I might even make some more!

I also want to share with you what we have been making at Guides....

Anyway....I digress. I HAVE managed to finish my sister's wedding album so I might take some pics of that later. I have also been getting on with Postcrossing. Remember I told you about the site where you get random postcards from all over the world. Well one lady sent me one from Finland and said that one of her hobbies was ATCs. Soooo we arranged a swap and these are the two I made for her. I did them at the same time as the November ATC swap on UKStampers too. I am just too organised! I did all the backgrounds the same; beige mountboard painted with white, ochre and sienna paint. Then a blast of cosmic shimmer. These two I then overstamped with a postcard stamp and some other postal bits. I triple embossed the frame/swirl with pewter powder and then popped it all on with some vintage images.
So back to November..I already explained the BG bit; for these I decided to collect random, linked stamps and put them all over the BG, masking as I went.
